According to a note on his Wikipedia user page, George Gesslein II passed away in February 2012 :^( His project's website is still up (http://mathomatic.org/), but its links to Mathomatic's source code are broken. It can still be found elsewhere though. The last version George released was 16.0.5. (Our directory currently refers to version 16.0.0.)

Debian has source for version 16.0.4
https://tracker.debian.org/pkg/mathomatic
Fedora has a source RPM for 16.0.5
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=479494
mfilpot (mfilpot at gmail dot com) has George's original source package for 16.0.5
https://github.com/mfillpot/mathomatic

I've downloaded mfilpot's copy of 16.0.5 and checked its licensing. The package is in good shape, and I found no licensing problems. The code is LGPLv2.1, and the documentation is GFDLv1.3.

Soooo... I don't really know what to do from here. Suggestions? :^)
